in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assault on a u.s. post in benghazi. this was the scene yesterday after what is now being called a coordinated attack that ended with four americans dead, including one of our most valued ambassadors, chris stevens. in yemen hundreds of protesters stormed the u.s. embassy grounds chanting "death to america," a phrase we have heard in so many places over the past 48 hours. while in iraq demonstrators trampling on the stars and stripes, setting our flag on fire and showting anti-american and anti-israeli chants. in just a few minutes we will speak with one of the foremost authorities on the middle east when dr. henry kissinger joins us life with his take on what -- live with his take on what we are seeing right now on this earth. but first we go to leland vittert who has just arrived in cairo. his photographer is not there yet, so he is coming with us via laptop, and the situation is precarious. leland? >> reporter: well, so long as the laptop the balcony, we're going to be okay, megyn. we're about 18 stories up, and you
veteran who served in missions from baghdad to benghazi. tyrone woods and glen doherty were former navy s.e.a.l.s who were working as diplomatic security officers at the u.s. consulate. the bodies were met by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton, vice president joe biden and president barack obama. >> but even as voices of mistrust and suspicion seem to divide countries and cultures from one another, the united states of america will never retreat from the world. >> we've seen the anti-american protests popping up in more than a dozen countries now, but not all of them have been violent like what we've seen in egypt or libya. many more of the protests have been peaceful like this one in pakistan, with muslim demonstrators voicing their anger over an anti-muslim film produced in the u.s. >> some of the largest anti-american protests have been in cairo where officials were forced to build large concrete walls in the streets just to keep protesters away from the u.s. embassy there. ian lee joins me now from cairo. we know at points there's been lots of people, thousands of people, at leas
this year. libya, where four americans were murdered at the consulate in benghazi last week gets a little over $13 million in financial assistance, and egypt where we saw people burning the american flag, they accept more than $1.5 billion from the united states, and the obama administration would like to keep that money flowing, sending secretary of state hillary clinton to make the case to congress today where the administration's getting more and more pushback on this issue. joining me now, retired four-star general jack keane who's a former vice chief of stash for the army and a fox news military analyst. general, more and more we're hearing republican lawmakers, and we had senator rand paul last week saying it's time to put a stop to this. why would we be funneling billions of dollars worth of aid into countries where we are seeing scenes like this? what's your thought? >> well, listen, your viewers and anybody looking at those guys on the wall and burning the american flag would have an understandable reaction, and i can certainly understand the frustration on the part of congress,
that they and not extremists represent the real sentiments of libyan people. >> now to benghazi, libya, where our senior correspondent has more on those pro-democracy demonstrators. >> reporter: well, randi, this is probably one of the few countries where we are seeing mass demonstrations, not just in support of the united states but more condemning the attack that took place on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. people take together streets yesterday in the thousands, demanding democracy, but more importantly demanding an end to these extremist militias whom people and the government here say were in fact behind the attack that took ambassador stevens' life and the life of three other americans. what happened is that at night on friday hundreds of these pro-democracy demonstrators began taking the situation into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known extremist militias in the city of benghazi, including the headquarters of the militia known as ansar al sharia, and if you'll remember the libyan government has said it has detained individuals who are part of ansar al sharia, an associati
of the eastern region where the city of benghazi is saying that a number of individuals suspected of involvement in the attack on the consulate in the city of benghazi have been detained. and they are being interrogated right now. an investigation is ongoing with these individuals. and he says this will reveal either their development or innocence in this attack. >> all right. jomana karadsheh, thank you railroad much. hopefully it will find out if they're victims of a plot or outrage shown as american outposts through the world. demonstrators in at least ten countries, building against america over what one reported american created, a movie that mocks the prophet muhammad as a child molester and a womanizer and in iran, chants of death to america. in yemen, several thousand people demonstrated, some of them breached a wall of the u.s. embassy. 24 security officers were hurt along with at least 3 protesters who were injured. in egypt, you're looking at live pictures now. state television reports more than 200 people were hurt in anti-u.s. protests in cairo. the secretary of state hillary clinto
are in benghazi for us right now. what's the scene like there? >> well, everyone we have been speaking to and i literally just landed here two hours ago, is incredibly distraught of what took place. they are in utter shock and want to make clear how anguished they are over what transpired. they want the world to know, this is not libya or an action that was supported by the vast majority of libyans. this most certainly is not why they want revolution. many of them reiterated against the fact that they expect them to the united states to nato for their aid. that being said, all of them want to see their government disarm with these gangs that are roaming about with basically pure impunity. some of these gangs are remnants of the revolutionary forces that were established during the fighting that took place that has been robust to lay down their weapons for a variety of reasons. some are more extremists and they emerge from these evolution nary forces. this brings to light the sinister -- but outside of the authority of the government itself. the realization here very much that this is not the pa

.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. and sky news, our cousins across the pond in britain, are reporting tonight that the libyan interior ministry is saying that an american has been killed in the clashes there. >> shep: it is astounding to hear it from the analyst how either one person or one tiny group among 300 million people in this country can cause this sort of a problem. we know it's not the first time we've seen this sort of protest. far from it. >> we remember, of course, the protests that happened after that christian church leader in florida, terry jones, proposed burning the koran back in 2010. then, of course, there were the protests across the middle east in 2005 after a danish magazine published caricatures of the prophet, mohammed. the concern now with this particular incident in egypt is this is the new egypt, the new egyptian president is a member of the muslim brother shed and there will be questions about security outside the u.s. embassy. u.s. marines are responsible for security up to the perimeter wall. egyptian security forces should have been there. one imagine would cos
that's erupting. starting with kcairo. benghazi and now, beyond. you wrote an op-ed "the new york times" about all of this saying the republicans are in disarray, they're divided about national security and foreign policy. so, did mr. romney's handling, his comments following the unrest in egypt further kind of underscore a real girth of understanding if not confusion? >> yeah, it's a little bit of both and i think if you see mitt romney hours after our top diplomat and three other americans were murdered in libya, he was trying to use this as a political case and then the reaction to romney within his own party. many republicans shaking their heads and criticizing and saying this is not the moment. some even noting that when reagan and george h.w. bush ran for president in 1980 and we had servicemen killed trying to rescue hostages in iran, reagan didn't politicize that moment, neither did bush, so it seems that the republican party has lost its way. there are so many splits inside of the party about spending and how do we predict power in the world that many republicans really don't k
